Longer walk on the Boulevard

Good news for walkers. Since March 29, 2024, another part of the Philadelphia Boulevard is available for pedestrians.

The reconstruction of the Philadelphia Boulevard in Toruń is at the best, but individual parts on the Vistula are stages made available to pedestrians. So far, the inhabitants have been given the area between the pavilions from Żegalrska street up to Łazienna street. Now another fragment has been made available, from March 29 this year you can walk a new route from the Bridge Gate to Warszawska street. It is also worth noting that at one of the pavilions, the sale of ice cream has already started.

Due to the fact that the contractor is still working on the entire 1.5-kilometer stretch of boulevard, we are reminded to be particularly careful. The most intensive work is carried out in the western boulevard, where a new road is being created. Further areas are also being prepared for planting.
